Here we go again.

Columnist Brian Dickerson, in yesterday’s edition of the Detroit Free Press, is the latest to call for motorcyclists to be de-facto organ donors. What’s worse, he suggests that injured motorcyclists not be given medical treatment at all.

In writing about the pending repeal of Michigan’s mandatory helmet law, Dickerson says, “If only lawmakers had thought to add a requirement that all helmet-less cyclists agree to donate their organs. And why not require donorcyclists to sign papers declining extraordinary lifesaving measures, so that deserving organ recipients aren't kept waiting unnecessarily?”

Dickerson doesn’t stop there. He lumps motorcyclists in with “champions of the right to die,” including shameless and insulting references to Jack Kevorkian and Terri Schiavo.

We’ve seen this sort of hysterical, uninformed opinion before, of course. Last September, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg characterized riders as organ donors in a column headlined "Hop on a motorcycle, fill out your donor card” -- and your e-mails to Mr. Steinberg prompted him to admit in a later column that he wrote without knowing the facts. Earlier, the AMA joined motorcyclists nationwide in defeating actual legislative proposals in New Mexico and California that would’ve required motorcyclists to be organ donors.

But by suggesting that injured motorcyclists be left to die, Dickerson has set an all-time low -- and the AMA has told him so. If you’d like to let him know how you feel, you can reach him at [email protected]. :2hard

Well you guy's I emailed this total asshole and let him know exactly what I thought of him! You know alot of bad shit happens to motorcyclist out on the highway that IS NOT OUR FAULT!!!!! Helmet law or not.....this is bullshit!!!! I am so raged at this dude, I mean I have two kid's and a husband if I was left for dead because some cager hit me It would be devistating to everyone in my family....can you even imagine someone thinking this way?????????WTF WTF WTF !!!!! :headshake

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO SAY, I AM ALITTLE MIXED UP ABOUT THIS ONE . LET ME SEE, FIRST WHAT HE SAID IS JUST PLAIN STUPID, THIS IS THE LAND OF THE FREE, WE SHOULD BEABLE TO RIDE WITH OUT HELMITS IF WE LIKE, JUST LIKE WE SOULD BE ABLE TO DRIVE A CAR WITH NO SEAT BELT (OUR CHOICE). IF WE WISH TO BE ORGON DONERS WE WILL FILL OUT OUR CARDS WITH OUT PERSWATION, AND IF I WAS EVER DENIED MEDICAL HELP MY FAMILY WOULD OWN THE HOSPITAL. AND YES WE CAN GET CRAZY ON THE OUR BIKES BUT MOST OF THE TIME IT IS NOT OUR FAULT THAT WE GO DOWN.

ANY HOW IF HE NEW ANYONE WITH AN ORGON TRANSPLANT HE MAY FEAL DIFF.

CALEB MY SON HE HAD A LIVER TRANSPLANT AND WELL THAT IS BASICLY HOW HE GOT HIS CANCER AND NOW PASSED A WAY, THERE IS A LOT TO BEING TRANSPLANTED AND IT NOT AS SIMPLE AS YOU THINK. HONESTLY I WOULD NEVER WANT ONE I WOULD RATHER PASS. BUT THAT IS HOW I FEAL FROM HAVE BEEN THEIR YOU KNOW ANY HOW I AM A LITTLE ERCED THAT HE WOUDL SAY THINGS LIKE THAT AND THE HOLE PART A BOUT MAKEING IT MANDITORY THAT WOULD START A REVALUTION , THEY TAKE OUR FREEDOM A WAY MORE AND MORE EVERY YR WITH NEW LAWS ON WHAT EVER OR THEY JUST START CHARGEING US FOR IT . IN ANY ASPECT THIS NATION IS DOWN DOWN THE DRAIN WITH THE PEOPLE WE HAVE LEADING IT AND IF WE DO NOT STAND UP AS A HOLE NATION AND TELL THEM TO GET FUCKED WE WILL END UP PAYING 5 DOLLARS FOR GAS AND HAVE TO PUT TRAINING WHEELS ON OUR BIKES.

OR THE GOVERNMENT WILL JUST START REGULATING THE SPEEDS ON CARS OR PUTTING COMPUTER KILL SWITCHES OR SOMETHING , WE WILL ALL BE LINKED WITH BAR CODES ON OUR NECK , ANY HOW ITS SUCK SO FUCK THEM! :thefinger

How about this, if a car hits a MotorCyclist it is concidered using a gun/act of violence as well as a hate crime. Cause of how most Bikers are hit by car drivers usually intentionally.

If i remember correctly aproximatly 80% of motorcycle accidents are not due to RIDER error.
your are correct on that. The statistic goes, 80% of accidents involving a car and a motorcycle are the car drivers fault.

ok, 80% of car vs rider is car fault, but i do believe more than 50% of motorcycle accidents is due to rider error.

Anyways, why do fucking people hate motorcycles so much? It seriously blows my mind. People on the street don't respect at all. Like yesterday going home, i'm making a right onto the street, i'm doing about 32 making a right and i'm on the left portion of the lane, as i'm leaning in a car comes up on my ride side making a right also. I was like, wtf??? I think i'm going to start smashing mirrors or pull some fuckers outta a car at a light and beat them down.
